Challenge #249 - "Charming" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well todays Challenge is all about using a Charm on your Card I can remember a few years ago when these were very popular and I know if your anything like me you have a full box of them so I dont suspect you will have any trouble finding one to add to your card but even if you do any piece of metal is allowed on your card instead.
But before I show you my own card I had better tell you who is our sponsor and of course its our very generous Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter


and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website here, and if you have used one of their gorgeous images you will be entitled to the whole amount but even if you havent you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice. But please if you are going to enter more than once, you are able to take part 3 times but one of those must carry one of our images please.
And for my Card I used this little lady


She is "Smart but Sexy" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card and used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I cut her out with my rectangle Nestabilitie Die and a fancy one for the mount out of beige card. The sentiment was created in the same way with the same die set.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of beige card and the backing paper is also from the same design set as the girl and you will find it here, and I then used a circle doily in the middle with the mounted image stuck in the middle of the card. I put the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have created a bow out of beige ribbon and hung the laptop charm from it.
And the final flourish are the
in the top right hand corner and the bottom left one. Now that youve seen my Card I do hope you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to want to take part in this "Charming " Challenge.

Anyway to cheer ourselves up this time the Challenge over on ABC Challenge Blogspot we have reached the letter H and this time its all about something metal on your card, so we leave the choice of embellishment up to you to choose.

And here is the Card I created for this Challenge


This little lady is called the "Knitter" and I stamped her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, afterwards I used one of my Marianne Dies to cut her out before removing her I inked around the edge so that it shows as in the photo. The sentiment is also from Marianne designs I stamped it onto white card and cut it out with yet another of the Marianne designs.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card and the first mount is blue card, the papers I used are from My Craft Studio paper pad and I used four papers and layered them up as shown. I then placed my mounted image towards the right, and the sentiment in the bottom left hand corned. I then used the knitting dies that come with this image and cut out the embellishments as shown and placed around the card in the top left hand corner and bottom right hand one.

And as usual our sponsor is Janet Roberts of Pink Gem Designs


We are so lucky to be able to choose any of Janets images and papers to play with and this time I hope you like what I have done with one of her pre-made card designs.


This beautiful card front I printed onto white card, you will find it here as "Roses and Butterflies" and then created a card with the topper, I then used the decoupage pieces by cutting them out and moulting them into shape and then sticking the layers up on top of the topper.
I used one of the sentiments from the same printed set and mounted this onto a piece of bright pink card and placed in the bottom left hand corner.

Good Morning Crafters, well as you can guess we have started a brand new month and with this comes a new Challenge over on ABC Challenges and this one is slightly different as we want to see "Anything but a Card". I always find this a extra challenge as Im never sure what to create so this time I hope you like the result.
We are being sponsored by Magnolicious


And of course it was necessary to dig around in my Magnolia stash and this is what I came up with.


I have always dreaded this happening to me but so far Ive been lucky. I stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I then cut her out completely.
The bag die is from Tonic and this was cut with dies and made up as shown in the photo with the basic bag out of red card with a overlay of black. I also stuck it together and added the handles as shown.
Afterwards I stuck the cut out Magnolia image to the left side of the bag.
Now that youve seen my project I hope that you will pay a visit to the ABC Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Anything but a Card" Challenge.
